Adjustable for Various Applications

The TH163 easily mates to an AF8 Military Grade Crimp Tool. Once mated, this Crimper Turret Head can be adjusted to match the diameter of the connector and wires desired. Because of this, connectors size 12 AWG to 24 AWG can be crimped correctly and precisely to wires for a professional and consistent connection. This causes a variety of applications to be available. Depending on the size wire this turret is adjusted to accommodate, this crimp tool can be used on commercial installations, home maintenance, laboratory work, and heavy duty military or aerospace applications. Almost anything that requires electrical wiring or connection systems, such as the Deutsch connectors line of products, can use the TH163 for their assemblies and ends.

Easy Use and Mating

The simple design of the TH163 Turret Head makes it easy and painless to use. The turret head fits into place on top of the AF8 Crimp Tool, then secures into place quickly with a simple use of an allen wrench for a snug mating. This allows for the turret to be left on the crimp tool or to be taken off when not in use, allowing the user to use whichever configuration is best for their next job. In addition, the light weight design makes it easy to transport and carry, allowing for wire crimping in the field and on any installation project and at many different heights and angles. Also, no operator maintenance beyond proper storage and occasional cleaning is required for the tool to continually function properly. So whether on the work site or in a workshop, this tool will fit your occasional or consistent needs alike.

Compatible with Deutsch Wires and Connectors

Deutsch Connectors are used on a huge variety of applications: aerospace, transportation, automotive, heavy machinery, and much more. Government contractors, independent companies, and hobbyists alike rely on Deutsch for any plugs, connectors, and pins used in electronics. For solid connectors used in these application, the TH163 Crimper Turret Head can be used to match up wires with their proper Deutsch connectors, allowing compatibility with the Deutsch common contact system and other Deutsch products. The 8-pin crimp that this tool creates is the ideal crimping connection for connectors of any size and application as it gives maximum connection strength and the cleanest termination. With the TH163, you'll never need to stress or do extra work to repair a bad crimp or damaged connection.
